Phylogenetic analyses based on morphometrics, data on protein electrophoresis, and mitochondrial DNA have given conflicting phylogenetic hypotheses for the subfamily Coregoninae (Prosopium, Coregonus, and Stenodus). To resolve these conflicts, phylogenetic analysis of 13 taxa of Coregoninae was done using a nuclear gene, the first internal transcribed spacer (ITS1) of the ribosomal DNA (rDNA). ITS1 sequences of all North American ciscoes were identical. In agreement with analyses based on other… CONTINUE READING
